Usually, I don't see anyone at Phifer. This time was exactly opposite of every time I've been here - it was jam-packed! It only took me a couple seconds to figure out that this area was experience hunting season. Every last rig was a hunter of some sort. How in the world are they going to get anything with so many people ripping around on ORVs? I checked out ol Phifer, nothing new to report, then went on my. Way too cold for a luke-warm shower this time of year anyway.

Phifer Warm Spring was uniquely cool in both appearance and temperature. The water flows out of an artesian well and is piped into a stand-up shower stall and old bathtub. This is best enjoyed on hot summer days to due the temperature of the spring water. There are campsites all around and at Phifer.

PUBLIC BATHING NOTICE

No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!

Public hot springs are not bathing facilities and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans) at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
